    I have a lot of respect for Jeff Daniels. He is willing to try scripts and play roles that vary widely. If the movie is anywhere nearly as good as the trailer, this is a role I can really appreciate. I hope the film does well – I will see it, and not even in the cheap theater!

    Hi Nell,
    I have Verizon Fios and I saw that when I go to rent a movie on demand they have this movie to watch early before it comes to theaters. If I happen to rent it early I will be more then happy to post a short review. If not then I will see this movie when it comes to theaters in late July.

    Thanks, Michael! Yes, they are experimenting with new distributions channels on this movie and will make it available on demand before it is in theaters. I think that is a good idea for small independent films. Whether you watch it on tv or in a theater, I’d love to know what you think of it.
